SOURCE: Oil type for air compressor

You can go to any Home Depot and buy compressor oil for your compressor. Your operators manual should tell you what the level should be, however if you don't have one, filling it with oil until it fills the glass tube about half way should be sufficient.

SOURCE: Air Compressor

Dewalt recommends synthetic oil in their compressors. The dewlat part # 5130427-00 quart, and 5130702-00 for a 4oz size. Available at or their service center. I have been using the Lowes brand of synthetic compressor oil. Kobalt oil sells for about $7 and works great. If you do not use your compressor all day like I do, you can use the standard grade of Kobalt compressor oil that sells for around $3. Synthetic oil is for extreme conditions. Good Luck!

    all air compressors will build up heat especially if they run non stop it is normal for them to get warm .an air compressor will cook itself if it doesnt cycle off and on and made to run continuously for long lengths of time which really depends on the type most home owner type air compressors are junk especially oil free oil less the best air compressors are cast iron oil lubricated which there is also aluminum oil lubricated which when thoes fail you just throw them away .cast iron pumps are better made and are rebuild able.oil free are noisy not very dependable.

    That is moisture in the pump oil. Not good. You need to drain it and replace it or cook it on your stove to boil out the moisture. Cooking the oil is dangerous and the heat must be just enough to make the water boil up and out but not take the the oil into a flammable temperature range or overheat the oil. Not going to smell good cooking either.
